Predecessor Patch 0.4
By sacrilege — February 17, 2023
Predecessor Patch v0.4 drops on February 21 and it promises to bring lots of interesting changes. Whether you're looking forward to new hero Shinbi, the ability to practice gameplay versus AI bots, or checking out cosmetic options for your favorite heroes, patch 0.4 has someone for everyone.
Here's a quick summary in the video below, and we'll dive into the full details past the drop.
Fangtooth continues to be an important objective for teams to take down, and doubly so with patch 0.4, which brings massive changes to our beloved jungle dinosaur.
Killing Fangtooth will continue to grant the same permanent, passive bonuses, though these now cap at three buffs:
- Jungle buff duration increased by 50%
- Out of combat movement speed increased by 8%
- Physical power, magical power, physical armor, and magical armor all increased by 8%
- Enemy targets are set aflame, dealing true damage per second for four seconds
- The damage scales based on match length
- This true damage is increased by 50% on enemy heroes within execution range (less than 25% of their maximum health)
- Damage is capped at 80 true damage per second (120/s against executable targets)
Player versus AI becomes available with Predecessor patch 0.4, letting you practice new heroes, item builds, and general gameplay in a low pressure environment. Versus AI can be played solo or with friends.
Finally, an early iteration of the in-game shop arrives with this patch. Put that founder's pack platinum to use!

Muriel has felt a little unloved recently, so we're granting her some larger buffs and power shifts to help players access her more exciting moments. We're increasing the overall values of her shields at the cost of a little cooldown so that she can prevent higher levels of burst from taking down her teammates. We're also allowing her to access her Ultimate a bit more often and making it easier to use as a quick reaction. These buffs, alongside the Wellspring bug fixes, should help Muriel flourish a bit more in the Duo lane.
